Factory robots forced into fastfood sector due to recession

RamenRobotsWhat with the recession hitting Japanese robot manufacturers hard, it’s not surprising that companies are trying to find unexplored work alternatives to make ends meet. In Nagoya Japan, a ramen restaurant started by a robot manufacturer is gaining popularity as two robot arms serve up dishes to curious customers. Novelty is the special of the day, and the noodles taste no worse for wear.  It takes less than 2 minutes for the robots to prepare a bowl of noodles and they make up to 80 on a busy day.

    Whoa, that’s pretty interesting. Kinda sucks in the terms of low paying jobs, but at the same time it helps keep the big money flowing in the economy from the robot manufacturers, I would guess.
